Taum Santoski III

'Aphorisms Towards a Poetics of Fantasy'

3. This world of myth, when measured against our world, is in another order of time -- what Frankfort calls "absolute time" -- the mythical past never recedes any further into the distance, as indeed it percolates through "history" from time to time, and time never brings the Golden Age any closer and all the other "Golden Ages" eventually tarnish.

--Taum Santoski, circa 1984
